Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will order his board to sanction a big money move for a striker following his side's 2-0 defeat at Burnley on Saturday.

The Sunday World's back page focuses on Liverpool's shock reverse at Turf Moor, with Klopp stunned by the inept display of his attacking stars. 

"We had 80 per cent possession, but Burnley's is a different way to play football and it is absolutely okay," fumed Klopp.

"It is not allowed that you suffer under your own poor possession because it makes no sense.

"Usually in a game like this we win if we don't make the mistakes in the wrong moment, but we did and now we have to accept the result and carry on. 

"Of course I am not happy. We need to be more clinical."

With Liverpool breaking even on their summer transfer trading so far following the £30m sale of Christian Benteke to Crystal Palace, Klopp will now target Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in the final days of this transfer window.

This is truly a bumper weekend of Sunday World sport, with John Aldridge, Paul McGrath and Kevin Moran offer their exclusive columns and Kevin Palmer and John Brennan covering the Premier League action.

Sean McGoldrick reports from Rio following a stunning week for Irish sport at the Olympics, with the shock arrest of deposed OIC chief Pat Hickey and Michael Conlan's controversial defeat in the boxing ring taking centre stage in our sports pages.

With the best GAA action including another brilliant column from Pat Spillane, this is a weekend of sport that will not be complete without your Sunday World.
